A Response to Spada and Lightbown: "Instruction, First Language Influence, and Developmental Readiness in Second Language Acquisition."
Sheen, Ron; Spada, Nina; Lightbown, Patsy
Modern Language Journal, v84 n1 p102-07 Spr 2000
Critiques a study on instruction, first language influence, and developmental readiness in second language acquisition. Agrees with conclusions of the study but argues that the study itself provided no justification for the conclusion other than what has been evident in research carried out on Quebec francophone school learners of English. The authors of the study respond to the critique. (Author/VWL)
